Nowadays people can do whatever they like at whatever age they want whether retraining or going to uni., this is a good thing. I sound like an old crock but times have changed and my life has gone full circle in some ways. I guess some of my life and my values are part of my growing up and what was considered tidy and proper. . . . My Dad, I know he’s really proud and my Mum has been dead now for seven years but he always, always says ‘Your Mum would be so proud,’ and she certainly would because definitely I would never have gone to do nursing training. It would never have entered my head to do it because I would have thought that was far above me anyway.
